Fasting to Fight

In July, the Ministry Report highlighted Dennis Donohue, mayor of Salinas, Calif., for his efforts in declaring a citywide fast against gang-related violence. Now the official is taking his message to the entire state and extending an invitation to the 13-city California Cities Gang Prevention Network—which includes the likes of Oakland, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Francisco—to join him in fasting. Although the fast in July was ridiculed by many members of the media as being ineffective in fighting crime, Donohue says his Fast for Peace campaign was so well received that it seems natural for the entire state to join on Nov. 16 to Nov. 23.
